Information sessions for parents & guardians applying for their child's admission to Diamond School.
Parent Information Sessions are intended for parents and guardians submitting new student applications for admission to our school in the upcoming school year. These group sessions are an opportunity to ask questions and learn more about the school – our philosophy, education programs and approach to creating a safe and nurturing learning environment. Sessions also address what to expect next in the application process.
Depending on interest and available spaces after re-registration is complete, sessions will be divided into four grade ranges - Kindergarten, Grades 1-3, Grades 4-7 and Grades 8-12. This helps us to tailor what we discuss in each session to the ages and grade levels most relevant to the parents attending. If you are applying for more than one child and they will be in different grade ranges, consider attending the sessions applicable to the grade ranges of each of your children.
Spring 2023 sessions are now complete.
Parents and guardians of new applicant students applying for admission to our school in September 2023 may attend. Support people for parents and guardians, interpreters, and all legal guardians are welcome. Please sign-up separately for each adult attending from a unique location through the sign up link below.

A new Information Session will be scheduled as soon as possible to replace any that are cancelled.
